3 Reasons to Incorporate Rugs in Your Home


If you’ve visited our Roanoke showroom, there is no doubt you’ve noticed a beautiful selection of rugs adorning our furniture settings. We firmly believe that rugs bring interior design concepts to life – which is why we display so many in our showroom and offer a vast variety of styles and sizes for purchase! Here are three reasons rugs are so important when designing your space:

Rugs “ground” your furniture.

One of the main functions of an area rug is to act as an anchor for the furniture in the space. For example, when designing a sofa group for your living room (i.e. sofa, chairs, cocktail table, etc.), placing a rug that is large enough to fit under the entire group helps to define the relationship between the various pieces of furniture. Furniture by itself often looks disorganized and jumbled; but rugs make the space look cohesive and purposeful.

Rugs turn your floor into art!

Perhaps one of the most obvious benefits of a rug is the style it can add to your space! Rugs provide opportunities for incorporating color, patterns, and interesting textures that compliment your unique style. At Reid’s Fine Furnishings, we carry a gorgeous selection of rugs in various styles and colors, including hand-knotted and machine-made options. If you need help with finding a rug that is perfect for your space, visit us today and we will be happy to find the right piece for you!

Rugs add warmth and comfort to your space (and they protect your floors!)

On a practical note, rugs also add coziness to your space – no one likes to walk on cold, hard floors all the time! For example, adding a plush rug beneath your bed or padding hallways with runners makes your home feel warm and comfortable. Plus, rugs help to protect your floors from scratches and everyday wear – and it is much easier to replace a rug if necessary than it is to replace flooring!
